    1891 "rac" colt cav saa

    I finally took the plunge, and purchased my 1st Colt SAA. Thanks so very much, to Rick S. Helping me, as I knew nothing about the COLTS, and their HISTORY.
    I purchased the STUDY of the COLT SINGLE ACTION ARMY book! Awesome reading!
    This pistol falls into the 13th and last contract, to the U.S.Gov.
    140,361 was the last pistol out Colt's door.
    My pistol is 140,066, with Rinaldo A.Carr stamps.
    It does NOT have the U.S. stamp. It has the RAMPANT COLT STAMP. With the 2 line, 3 dates.
    I wanted a 7.5" barrelled Colt. It's probably a MILITIA revolver! I'm good with that!
    Anyway, just wanted to share this OLE COLT W/U!
    I sure enjoy seeing all the others!
    Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm learning!
    My pics are inside it was raining.
    Thanks, Terry
    I dont know why, my TITLE went to jibberish! I hit something wrong, LOL!

    Although several parts bear government inspection marks, I don't think your gun was accepted by the government. That's why the frame is marked with the "Rampant Colt" instead of the "U.S." acceptance mark. I don't think the Ordnance Department bought any Colt SAA revolvers with this marking during this period.

    That said, I see that your serial number (140066) falls among a group of Cavalry revolvers known to have been issued to the NY State Militia (SNs: 140064, 140065, and 140068). Although I don't know for sure, I suspect that all these militia guns had "U.S." stamped on their frames.

    Thanks RUSTY! WOW! My serial no. Is right in there, but in LIMBO!
    The only basis I had, was in the book p. 264
    The RAMPANT COLT, was just coming in.
    And possibly this one slid by. They have the RAMPANT COLT, with the U.S. stamp on the circle. Mine doesn't have the U.S. though!
    Thanks for the response!

    Terry, you mentioned there is a Colt letter on this gun? That will confirm civilian or US.

    It is interesting to see the pictures of such a possible very late Cavalry SAA.
